By Richard A. Bauman

Punishment was once an indispensable component to the Roman justice process and as arguable because it is at the present time.

The emphasis is put on crimes opposed to the general public through the Republic and Principate with much less dialogue of both civil instances or concerns. distinct reference is made to adjustments in attitudes about the demise penalty.
